PalmSource Champions & User Stories Posted

PalmSourceWell, I'm a bit late to the party, but I'm now officially a PalmSource Champion! I had mentioned that I was accepted as a Champion in May, and late last week, my Writing, Text Editing & Word Processing Champion page was posted on the PalmSource website. Woo hoo! :-)

There are several other pages posted in the Applications section currently (check out the left-hand bar) and as I understand it, a second wave of Champion pages are due to go up sometime soon. Because the applicants signed up and were accepted in waves, new groups of Champion pages will be continually added.

If you have a particular interest in some area of Palm OS software or their use, I suggest you apply as a Champion. While there is a list of available topics, feel free to invent new ones and suggest them to PalmSource. As I understand it they want this thing to be wide open.

In return, PalmSource will be giving away $200 in gift certificates ($50 per quarter if you keep your page updated) and you'll get a warm fuzzy feeling, knowing you're helping people to find great Palm OS applications and ways to better use their Palm-powered handhelds.

Also, I read today at PDA Geek that PalmSource has chosen a winner (Craig Simpson) in the "How Has Palm OS Improved Your Life" story contest. You can also check out many of the runner-up story submissions which didn't win the prize.
